General Information for Faculty

Consultation and Outreach

The Academic Support and Access Center is a resource for all students, faculty, and staff at the university. Faculty can be particularly helpful to students by making appropriate announcements and individual referrals to study skills workshops, Supplemental Instruction sessions, peer tutor opportunities, Writing Lab appointments, and individual meetings with our professional staff.  

ASAC counselors are also available to faculty and staff to confidentially discuss student concerns. In addition, workshops and presentations tailored to various campus groups can be designed based on the needs of a particular course or group. 

Disability Accommodations at American University

In addition to the services outlined above, students who request accommodations for a disability are served by the Academic Support and Access Center. Faculty and staff who are requesting accommodations can contact Human Resources to provide documentation of their disability.
